Test Software for the 2008-2009 Cycle for Cardiology, Eye Care, ITI, PCC, Radiology
Northwestern now maintains the PDI source code, binaries and documentation on their server. That means you will be able to retrieve the latest version of PDI test tools from http://www.radiology.northwestern.edu/research/imaging-informatics/downloads
Software Consistency Page.
OFFIS may have newer versions of the DICOMScope tool. The OFFIS DICOM URL is http://dicom.offis.de
Previous versions of the MESA software required you to have schema definitions from HL7. We are rewriting those tests and providing a web service to allow you to upload your document for checking. This will simplify the checking and mean one less set of files for you to maintain.
Installation instructions are available on the MESA Documentation page.
The MESA software relies on data files which are stored in a separate directory. This is described in the Installation Guide. The MESA_STORAGE files are a collection of images (CR, CT, MR, ...) used as the inputs for various tests of integrated workflow. These are different from the images and presentation states used to test display consistency.
